Doctor Tecla Myrick from the Alachua County Animal Services talks about protecting your pets from poisonous plants.
There are approximately 700 plants that can cause problems for cats and dogs if chewed on or ingested.
The symptoms range from mild GI upset to kidney failure, cardiac arrest, siezures, coma, or even death.
The ASPCA Poison Control Center also has a 24 hour hotline that you can reach at 1-888-426-4435.
If you feel your pet may be showing these symptoms, or you are concerned that they may have come into contact with a poisonous plant, contact your veterinarian immediately.
